Rhinoceros Unicornis & Friends

  
Did you know that the  Rhino  is one of the Animals thought to be the inspiration for the Legend of the Unicorn!  . . . It makes sense,  if you think about  the fact that,  of all the Animals thought to be an inspiration,  the  Rhino  is the only one who belongs to the same Family as the  Horse  (of which the  Unicorn  is,  of course,  also a  part) ~ In fact,  there is an  Asian One-horned  species of  Rhino  called the  Rhinoceros Unicornis!

Did you also know that  Rhinos  were originally indiginous to the  American Continent  before they crossed the land-bridge and became  EXTINCT  here!?

There were once dozens of species of  Rhino  all over the globe!! . . . Now only 5 main species are left  (3 Asian  &  2 African),  all of whom are critically  Endagered and Threatened with imminent EXTINCTION,  due to  Poaching  &  
Loss of Habitat!

Rhinos are an ancient and amazing Animal,  every bit as Enchanting as the Unicorn ~ It would  truly be a tragedy to lose them!!  . . . Please help us save them,  before they too become just a Legend!!!   ] :< )

                        Working with Animal Spirits 
              
We are many . . . and will take a moment . . . our Wisdom will appear to you before we do."

Shamanism, the world's oldest healing tradition, is found in all cultures on Earth.

Shamans work with their allies~the Animal Spirits.

Learn the Wisdom of over three hundred of these spiritual teachers.
 
                                                                  


                                ~ Animal Spirit Guides

American Indians,  like most other  Native & Ancient  Cultures  (i.e. the Celts  &  many others),   give special recognition to the power of the Animal Spirits.  Animal Guides may teach us their powers and give as lessons of life.  You do not choose an Animal Guide as your ersonal Spirit Guide.  The Animal chooses you and they are the one who decides to whom they will reveal themself and make their Friend.  Discovering who your Animal Guides are is a process of paying attention to the Spirits around you and following the Signs.  It is a process of developing your Inner
Knowledge  &  Spiritual Understanding.

The Rhinoceros is characterized by one or two horns on the snout.  Their most distinguishing feature may wll be the cause of their extinction!  Their horns are prized by traditional Eastern cultures.  They have been carved into daggers and ground into powder thought to have healing powers.  They have also been used as aphrodisiacs.  Their horns, composed of a mass of keratin, a fibrous protein found in hair are used for digging up roots and other edibles.  Their poor eyesight compensated by their acute hearing & sense of smell  Teaches those with this  Medicine how to sniff beneath the surface and use discrimination in all the choices they make.

This amazing animal holds the energy of Spiritual Idealism.  In part this is due to their peaceful and timid nature.  Although the rhinoceros has a reputation for being dangerous,  especially the
Black Rhino,  it is generally quite passive and will only become aggressive when threatened.  It is often seen going out of its way to avoid trouble.


Spiritual Idealism can be a Blessing or a Curse,  depending on how it is applied in ones life.  If a persons ideals are so high that the achievement of that ideal is unattainable,  depression can set in . . . Those with this Medicine should remember to stay grounded in their pursuit of Spiritual Growth by taking things one step at a time:  Patience  &  Perseverance   are the cornerstones of this Medicine!

The Rhinoceros holds the secrets of survival.  It is a  Guardian of  Ancient Wisdom  and  reminds us to  tread gently on the Earth  &  Respect all Life.  In this way  Spiritual Idealism is attained ~ and Peace on Earth is established! . . .  When you Call upon the Rhino, these ideals await your discovery!

Rhinocero's Wisdom Includes:
Connection to ancient wisdom

Proper use of ancient wisdom
Learning comfort in solitude:
Knowledge of self
Trust of instincts

About Me Greetings,

My name is Máire, also known as the Cosmic Rhino (a nickname I've acquired because I love All Things Celestial & Rhino ~ incl. the Unicorn!) ...

I'm ... well, I'm lots of things, actually ~ many of which I'm still discovering (aren't we all, eh?) ...

To name a few, I'm an Animal Caretaker, an Environmental Educator & Activist...

... I'm also a Wife, I'm a Mommy to three beautiful Kitties, and I'm a Daughter (currently adjusting to my Father's passing ~ but I'm still learning from him! So far I've learned that you can learn a lot more from Death than Life, unfortunately. And I've learned we shouldn't wait for a death to learn our lessons or to make sure we let our Loved Ones know just how much we care!).

In addition, I run my own Fundraising Business (going online soon with a: Website, Online Store & Educational/Action Resource Centre), through which I donate 10-100% of all Profits to various Animal, Children's, Elderly, Environmental, Social & Native American/Indigenous Peoples Non-Profit Groups ~ I also offer Wholesale Opportunities, through which others can start their own Business while donating a % of profits to their choice of Organization. And I've recently created a new "Original Artists Collection" for which I will be collaborating with various talented Artists who are willing to donate a % of their profits (which CRG matches) to their choice of Organization! So, I'm very excited about that!

Finally, I'm a dedicated Friend who will fiercly protect those she loves (when I'm not the Cosmic Rhino, I'm probably the Dragon).

... Yeah, that's a good start, I guess. ; )

Wild Fact About Me I'm struggling with figuring out how to live in the human world (most of my life I've felt too different to be human but, with the help of Friends, I'm trying to learn!)
My Philosophy The greatest Gift is our ability to Give! . . . "He who gives when he is asked has waited too long." ~ Lucius Annaeus Seneca
What Gives Me Hope Anytime I see a human making a selfless sacrifice, especially when it's to help a non-human (or ANYONE different from themselves)!
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by I would stop trying to make life easier and encourage people to start thinking & doing for themselves again, and for others. And I would begin by helping to create an Educational System that allows -- and even encourages -- that kind of Educated / Intelligent / Informed Free Thinking, rather than promoting Brainwashing!).

Life isn't meant to be easy, otherwise we wouldn't learn anything or progress! We have to move from a society that's totally Ego & Ethno/Species-centric and start recognizing, validating, and appreciating the views, rights, and needs of others (incl. Non-Human Animals)!
What/who changed my life and why As a child, it was definitely my Mother, my Dog Benji, and a Pin-prick of Light (My Holy Trinity) who literally SAVED MY LIFE!!! . . . I would not be here today without them!

As far as CHANGING my Life, more recently, it would be Myself and the movie "Mindwalk," because it's just so cool (and it echoes exactly what I have always believed!) . . . I love the whole debate over everything being connected. For instance, I've always believed that Art, Science, Magic, Etc. are all the same thing!

. . . also Death will definitely change your life, to say the least, as it will utterly DESTROY the person you once were (or thought you were) and you have to totally start all over again ~ if you are ever able to resurrect yourself!
What Bugs Me people who WON'T use their minds!, apathy, bullying, hypocrisy, indifference, ignorance  
Passions LIFE!!!, spirituality, reading, traveling, trees, nature, my friends, my husband, music, learning, family, environment, children, books, animals  
Inspirations People waking and seeing their own light, good people, animals  
What Scares Me War - Cruelty - Greed - Indifference, moral direction of our society, hate, ignorance, current USA administration, apathy  
  Favorites
Role Models My Father (example of transcendance), My Mother (compassion &amp, selflessness), My Brother (epitomy of honour), My Husband (teaching me to enjoy life)  
Quotation Lots. A few are:

He who gives when he is asked has waited too long. ~ Lucius Annaeus Seneca

When we look for the roots of evil, it's important always to look first within. ~ Viggo Mortensen

The Greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated. ~ Mahatma Gandhi

This country will not be a good place for any of us to live in unless we make it a good place for all of us to live in.
~ Theodore Roosevelt, former President of the U.S.

Be the change you want to see in the world ~ Mahatma Gandhi

All the darkness in the world cannot put out the light of one candle. ~ Confucius

I didn’t know it was impossible. ~ Isaac Stern

The only thing worse than acting out of ignorance or malice is indifference or idleness. ~ Mine, inspired by the movie: "Purgatory"

Ah, give me the grey Mysts of Avalon, that I may transcend in ethereal dreams of Evanescence. ~ Mine

Can a heart still break once it's stopped beating?
~ Richard E. Grant, The Corpse Bride

There is something you should understand about the way I work . . . When you need me,
but do not want me, I must stay. When you want me, but no longer need me, then I have to leave. ~ Nanny McPhee, Nanny McPhee
